Alton working the shallows

Here's how slowly Alton Jones is working his way through this shallow spawning flat. It just took him a minute and 20 seconds between casts, and he's not making long casts. He had a Senko, a tube and a frog tied on this morning. I can't tell exactly what he's throwing right  now, other than it's obviously not a frog.


The emphasis is on stealth. Jones has a cameraman in his boat, but his  marshal is observing in the flatbottom with us. And we're whispering, as if someone is about to attempt a putt on the 18th green on Sunday at The Masters.
